I'm Kate, a Principal turned Therapist because I saw a need.
I have been working as a teacher and school administrator since 2005. In 2011, I completed my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology, then later became a certified member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association in October of 2018. Counselling and coaching has been a passion of mine throughout my education career and recently I decided to branch out on a new journey to start my own counselling practice for our youth and families!
I specialize in helping young people to overcome and identify issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and self-doubt. As well as helping families to improve their communication skills and navigate through tough circumstances such as divorce, loss, and newly bIended family situations. I take great pride in the progress, success, and empowerment of my clients, and look forward to helping you. Get in touch to learn more.

I hope to connect with your teen to give them the tools and techniques they need to navigate this fragile developmental stage in their life, to become a self-confident young man or woman.
If you are an adult who is struggling with depression or anxiety, relationship problems, or habits & addictions, I have learned some powerful tools that can help with rapid recovery.
